This great house is a first floor walk-up with three steps leading to the main door, we have a nice bench outside for those nice summer days you wish to sit outside. I recommend that. We've created a nice private backyard space with a bench, chair and plenty of sunlight on sunny days. A good place to sit out and relax.

Floor 1: This house is set up comfortably so everyone has their own space and privacy. It’s great for families, groups and couples. The living room is centrally located so you can gather and enjoy each other company. There is a large flat screen TV in the living room perfect for movie nights.

Floor 2: You have two bedrooms both private and away from each other.

Bedroom 1 - Main bedroom has a tall standing queen size bed which is very comfortable, mounted flat screen TV, cable and WIFI, closet space, private doorway, air conditioning, electric heating. There are plenty of windows for natural sunlight and fresh air with a front of the house street view.

Bedroom 2 - Has a comfortable FULL SIZE bed just upgraded, dresser, closet space and private doorway & A/C. Also a nice place to sleep and rest.

Bathroom - There is a nice full ceramic bathroom with shower and tub installation, vanity, toilet and plenty of toiletries. The bathroom is comfortable, clean and very well kept.

Lower Level: Bedroom 3 - Is located on the lower level, with a Single bed set up, dresser and table. There is no TV in this room, it’s what we call the quite room away from it all.

First time in Philadelphia, the area looks a bit sketchy but staying there for a week changed that. Neighbors are friendly and it's right next to the train station. Felt just like home. Bobby was very helpful with events in the area and local restaurants. Hoping to come back here soon!

Bobby is fantastic to work with, he is very responsive. His space in only a block from a large park and a few blocks from other small restaurants and a very nice market/cafe. His space is good if you have a number of people and you are on a budget. It is a no-frills space (other than his awesome TV) We walked the neighborhood to Pizza Brain, but felt more comfortable in a group.

Great place for a quick getaway to Philadelphia! Bobby is super helpful and flexible, and even granted us an early check in!

Overall, we had a pleasant stay at this Airbnb. The host is very good at communicating quickly back and forth when you have questions. He was also very accommodating when we needed to check in at an earlier time. However, the biggest downside of the stay was the ants. We all experienced having ants in our beds and there were numerous on the bottom floor as well as near the kitchen. The host has said that he will look into this issue and the ants will be taken care of ASAP.

I would not recommend this place to anyone and am ashamed that I chose to have my family stay with me here. Even the bedrooms were infested with ants, which got into all of our food. The whole place felt grimy and not taken care of. The location was NOT what we expected at all and we did not feel safe leaving our car out on the street at night.

Bobby User Profile

Energetic Motivated Person with a Business Demeanor and Personality. Health and Social Living is important to me and I enjoy meeting people from all walks of life. Some of my closest freinds were met through interesting events.

I own and operate several businesses in several states in the U.S. So I am very focused on moving ahead and travel a lot as well. One of my businesses requires me to be deal with the Entertainment Industry so I am very well connected as well, but I don't take advantage of that, its a blessing.

I'm very Clean, Open Minded, Mature and Respectful. Freindly yes yet you can have your own space if you are not into meeting new people. I can host and provide ideas, tips and suggestions on what to do when your in the area, that comes with people asking in advance and and if Im available to do so, which is most cases I am.

This is my home and I welcome those who come and visit. I hope to receive the same level or consideration from all the guest who come to Casa Del Forest, Nickname for home.

PS. I cant live without my children, (They live elsewhere), Reading, Internet, Getting together with my friends to just appreciate our times, and my business momentum. Its what drives me.

When I travel I like to meet new people and I like to get to know the areas from a local perspective, not the tourist version.

Life Motto "Palante" Means "Forward" in spanish.
